Row as Defra targets Cumbria's buzzards
Last updated at 12:00, Friday, 25 May 2012
Plans to destroy buzzards nests and capture and cage the bird of prey have been called “scientifically illiterate” and “morally indefensible”.
Have your say
How long must the majority who love birds and other wildlife put up with the few gamekeepers and landowners who are bent on destroying for the sake of their own greed. Landowners get the ear of the government. Not a vote winner Tories. I will never vote for you again because you considered destroying our wildlife and listened to the rich.
Richard Benyon has been outed as the partisan friend of the bloodthirsty shooting classes that he is!
This idea has now benn dropped by Defra and the Tories, well done all.
